RUMOR: Marvel Studios Interested In NOPE Star Keke Palmer For A Major MCU Role RUMOR: Marvel Studios Interested In NOPE Star Keke Palmer For A Major MCU Role

Nope star Keke Palmer is said to be on Marvel Studios' radar for a "big role" in a future MCU project. Is there a chance her campaign to play Rogue paid off?

Keke Palmer was already a best-selling recording artist prior to landing the co-lead role in Jordan Peele's Nope, but her infectious, standout performance as Emerald in the 2022 sci-fi horror flick put her on the map in a big way.

Shortly after the movie's release, Palmer started a social media campaign to play Rogue in Marvel Studios' planned live-action X-Men movie, sharing some impressive cosplay photos as the fan-favorite mutant powerhouse.

Palmer's interest in playing Rogue began to gain more attention when she responded to a fan's video explaining why he felt she would be a perfect pick to play Rogue (as opposed to the heroes she's usually fan-cast as, such as Storm) in the upcoming MCU reboot.

"That's confidential, sugar," Palmer responded when asked if anyone from Marvel has been in touch during a follow-up interview with ComicBook.com. "No, I'm kidding. I don't know. I just know that the fans... the way that the fans have me booked, honey, online, I got to do a gig every week. So if we're adding Marvel to it, hey, let's do it. I'm ready for Rogue."

It doesn't happen very often, but actors expressing their desire to play certain characters does sometimes pay off and put them on a studio's radar. Is this the case for Palmer?

Well, we have no idea if she's in contention to play Rogue, but Daniel Richtman is reporting that Marvel is interested in the actress for a "big role" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He adds that he's "not sure if they already met with her but If not yet, then they will."

Honestly, Rogue or any other X-Men character is probably a long-shot (no pun). While writer pitch meetings are said to be underway, Marvel hasn't begun to cast this elusive movie yet, and is unlikely to do so for quite some time. In fact, there are rumors that contractual issues are preventing Kevin Feige and co. from introducing new actors as established mutant characters such as Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, etc to The MCU, and they may not be able to move forward with a reboot until 2025.

There are numerous other roles Marvel could be eyeing Palmer for, but who would you most like to see her play? Have another look at her Rogue photos at the link below, and be sure to drop us a comment in the usual place.

@HermanM - They should get an African-American like Charlize Theron.

@ObserverIO - There would be a problem, Theron is already in MCU as Clea in Doctor Strange 2

@HermanM - Storm is the descendant of a line of African priestesses. Making her white would fundamentally change the character.

@SheepishOne - so make the priestess white.

See how easy it is to play that game?

@dragon316 - Deadpool 2 wasn't in MCU, so he could play Cable

@HegoD - Yeah, this could be in the reboot. I don't think there's enough time to introduce an MCU X-Men pre-Secret Wars anyway. What would be the point, you'd only have to do a messy Merged Earth thing. It'd be better to leave the X-Men reboot for the actual MCU reboot.

Also that way you get to age Storm up so she can marry T'Challa (or an aged up T'Challa Jr).

@HermanM - So rewriting cultural history and demographics is "easy"?

I guess if you're trying to create a double standard to win an argument.

@SheepishOne - it's done to whites all of the time; just tell people they have no culture, then tell them they're not even a real people.

Simple as.

@dragon316 - Doesn't matter. Even though we knew it. One was a human mutant and the other an alien. Doesn't count.

@SheepishOne - They just released a series with a black Anne Boelyn...Gerald Butler played an Egyptian God and so on. So don't think Hollywood cares about historical accuracy anymore. Having said that I don't think Palmer should be Rogue.

@BaddestOptics - what's it like to hate white people so much that you cheer when they're replaced in their own stories?

@HermanM - None of the listed items are cultural. They are used by literally billions of people around the world of all races and ethnicities.

@cubrn - So our culture is appropriated by everyone because we are so generous with it.

You're welcome.
cubrn

@HermanM - The white culture didn't invent those things; individual people did. They are not cultural to white people. You can't be this stupid.
HermanM
HermanM - 4/25/2024, 10:50 PM
@cubrn - Language is cultural, it is the expression/communication of a people. Culture comes from people. Every people has a culture, including white people.

That said, so according to you, if an individual white person does something good, only they get credit, but if an individual does something bad, like own slaves, the entire race is guilty of slavery?

You can't have it both ways. If we must take responsibility as a race for anything bad our people have done, then we can also take credit for the good they have done as well, and that far outweighs the bad.

cubrn - 4/25/2024, 11:20 PM
@HermanM - Language is cultural because a culture created it collectively. Inventions are not cultural because individuals invented them.

@cubrn - he absolutely is this stupid. No sex, too much internet and not enough hugs from your parents will do that to a guy.

@cubrn - it's a medical condition and we should try harder to be understanding of that!

@HermanM - yeah as a white male I have zero representation. I'm only 90 percent of politicians, 95 percent of ceos, the majority of the comic book characters and so on. Cute that you try and brand me an incel since your talking points are weaponized woman repellent.

@cubrn - why are you so concerned over the size of my junk instead of refuting my argument?
HermanM

@BaddestOptics - You're a global minority at less than 9% of the world population, have no institutional support, and are on your way to becoming a minority within your own country, all by design.

Is there another race of people that you would have this done to and then call them pathetic for not embracing it?

@HermanM - well rogue can easily be race swapped cause she is a southern American, that's more plausible than race swapping storm because storm is not American her nationality doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room to do a race swap. plus that would be just plane stupid.
HermanM
HermanM - 4/26/2024, 10:04 AM
@supermanrex - Except she's a white southerner, not a black one. Unless you think of race as a coat of paint, a white southerner isn't any more interchangeable than a Sub-Saharan black person is.
